Bono’s Regains Voice; U2 Tour will Go On
Good news, U2 fans! Bono has received a clean bill of health from a medical professional, and will return to the stage tonight (Sept. 4) for the band’s show in Cologne, Germany.
As 1071 The Boss previously reported, the band was in the middle of “Red Flag Day” from the latest album, Songs of Experience, when the singer’s voice inexplicably gave out. Although he tried to continue with the next song, “Beautiful Day,” the group cut the show short, promising to reschedule for the Berlin audience.
“I’ve seen a great doctor and with his care I’ll be back to full voice for the rest of the tour,” Bono shared in a note n the group’s socials. “So happy and relieved that anything serious has been ruled out.”
He added, “My relief is tempered by the knowledge that the Berlin audience were so inconvenienced. There was an amazing atmosphere in the house, it was going to be one of those unforgettable nights but not for this reason…We can’t wait to get back there on November 13th.”
A handwritten note from Bono also was posted on U2.com that added, “P.S. to those who sang ‘Red Flag Day’ for me last night, thanks, there are some high notes in there. As always, ‘You take us higher.'”
